Learning in the Making
Makers are people who imagine things and make the things that they imagine—gadgets, electrical circuits, software, games, artworks, videos, robots, musical instruments, designs for buildings and a thousand other useful or beautiful objects. Makers are also learners. They learn in order to make. And they learn from their making. This Learning Module steps makers and their makershop co-ordinators through the process of documenting their learning so they can present the fruits of their learning—the wonderful things they have made—to the world. We call it a DIT guide, because it also steps makers and their co-ordinators through processes of peer feedback, so the final results are not just DIY (do-it-yourself) but DIT (do-it-together).
